Hong Kong's Wang Chen (pictured) left the city for what looks set to be her final two tournaments before retiring. The world number six, 32, stars in today's Malaysia Super Series, before moving to the Korean Open in Seoul next week. 'My plan is to finish the two tournaments before deciding what to do next,' said Wang, who became the first home player to win the Hong Kong Open in November. Hong Kong's Zhou Mi, the world number one, and Yip Pui-yin are also competing this week.
